“My body! What I say goes!” is a children’s book written to empower and teach children about personal body safety, feelings, safe and unsafe touch, private parts, secrets and surprises, consent and respectful relationships. The book is among others written by Australian author Jayneen Sanders, which also includes an activity book.

Melbourne-based charity GAT Foundation connected the author from Educate2Empower Publishing to Consuelo Zobel Alger Foundation in the Philippines. The partnership organised the translation and publishing of the Tagalog version ‘Basta Katawan Ko! Masusunod Ako!’, which will be distributed to high risk children through the Consuelo Zobel Alger Foundation.

“Efforts to contain the coronavirus are vital to the health of the world’s population, but they are also exposing children to increased risk of violence – including maltreatment, gender-based violence and sexual exploitation,” says Samantha Bonney, Founder of GAT Foundation.

The GAT Foundation will release further information on distribution in Manila as it happens later in the year.
